Although this Magnet Pack was written for primary classrooms, it is a read to learn book verses a learn to read book. It is suggested for students reading at or above grade level. This was written with exposure to scientific ideas, not mastery, as the goal.
~ Magnet Fact Books: 2 options (15 half sheets)
*One is a standard take home book.
* One has blank spaces to be filled in by students.
It covers: What is a magnet, Magnetic fields, how magnets are made, how Earth is like a magnet, compass, and various uses for magnets.
~ Magnets KWL worksheet: Know, Want to Know, Learned
We complete the KWL: know and want to know sections before reading the fact book.Then, I like to read the standard version book to the class using our elmo. I pass out the books with the blank spaces. We re-read as a class, and fill in the missing words to help with comprehension. Finally, I have them complete the their KWL charts.
Many of the examples lend themselves to easy classroom experiments.
pg. 4 and 5: Create a T chart - Test items to see what is and is not magnetic.
pg. 8 Magnet force – How many pages of paper are needed to block the force of a magnet attraction to the paperclip?
pg. 11 Create a temporary magnet with a nail and magnet.
